THE horrific consequences of not wearing a seat belt were brought to life for school pupils by a play based on the true story of a girl disfigured in a car crash.

The play - called Perfect - toured secondary schools in Cambridgeshire, including St Peter's in Huntingdon.

The play, being presented to year nine pupils, tells the story of how the girl escaped death but suffered life-altering, serious facial injuries.

Gillian Carey, road safety officer for Cambridgeshire County Council said: "Research shows that it is not the thought of death in a road crash that worries teenagers but being facially disfigured. We hope pupils will remember what they have seen and not only wear a seat belt at all times but encourage their friends to do so as well.
